100 Words on Saturday Week 2
Introduced last Saturday – an invitation, a prompt, a linky. Write exactly a 100 words on the prompt and publish it on your blog – a story, a poem, a mini-essay. The linky will be open right up to next Friday, after which I will have a new prompt and a fresh linky.
This Saturday, the prompt is: BE CAREFUL
“Be careful of the friends you choose
You will become like them”.
“Online friends? Are you crazy?”
I choose not to listen.
I choose to be me.
I choose to be friends with those who
Follow their hearts;
Pursue their passion;
And are happy to be themselves;
I keep in my circle those who
Care about others
Have concern for the world
And reach out in action.
I gather around me those who
Like a good natter;
Love to laugh;
And are eccentric in their own way.
Perhaps I am being careful about my friends after all.

Love the picture – so apt…:)
Yes indeed, be careful – everywhere and of everyone too. I guess one can’t say anything about how or what turns life would take, though you can be careful 🙂 Nice poem too 🙂
Thanks for sharing. 🙂

A good prompt, here is mine:
” keep in my circle those who
Care about others
Have concern for the world
And reach out in action.”
🙂 That is a worthwhile circle to own.

Wow, love this Corinne ~ strictly 100 words would not be too easy for me though 😛
Hmmm… I’m careful in choosing my friends too 🙂

Love it Corinne. I agree that it is best to choose friends that we can be ourselves around and also have friends that encourage us to stretch and grow.

Ahh! This blog resonates so well. It’s close to my mind and is just what I was thinking – and you know that! Thank you!

This is a brilliant poem! I have to hold both hands up and admit that poetry is not my strong point!

I love your poem. You are very talented. I’m not sure about the line of online friends being crazy…lol.

This is such a neat idea, and is a great prompt if you’re running short on ideas, too. I also love the picture and the quote at the bottom of the post. It made me smile.

So very true, Corinne! I was always annoyed to hear my father advice me about choosing my friends carefully, but I realize how true it is!

Loved your poem! Very apt …
Its good to be careful when we make friends.
Sometimes, when I look back, I realise that a lot of hurt/words could have been saved if I had been a bit more careful!

Inspiring poem. I have to say that I’m also careful with my friends. I realise that we become the people we hang around, so I choose not to spend my time with bitter people.

Another challenge! Love it! And, loved your poem, too, Corinne. You are such an inspiration. I will try to come up with something.

I loved working with the prompt this week! Thank you, Corrine. I didn’t get a chance to publish it on my blog yet, but I probably will later. I look forward to working with your prompts from time to time and appreciate the opportunity you’ve created for us. Wishing you well.

Love this and couldn’t agree more. I used to run with mean and angry people. Now with you as one of my friends and so many I have met on line and in my AA meetings I have to say I am now surrounded by loving and wonderful friends. I have few left from the past, I pray that they might find peace in their hearts as I have. It is all I can do.
Lovely poem Corinne 🙂
Yes we really need to be careful about the friends we have as it is said we become like them and people judge us by the company we keep.
